Simply call Aaron Holas at Wells Fargo bank in AZ (480) 510-0894. They are the #1 SBA lender in the Country! Aaron can walk you through the process, tell you what size you would qualify for, etc. You can get basic info right over the phone. Tell him I sent you. Then come see me to buy!
Thank you.

It's difficult to answer that question without more specifics. The most vital information you require includes the following:

1. Banks require a minimum of 20% of the purchase price (or 30% for a restaurant purchase) as down payment/owner injection;
2. Identify collateral to secure the requested loan (SBA doesn't necessary preclude a loan approval if there is a shortfall of collater);
3. Must possess some experience in the business being acquired OR employ management that has experience;
4. Good credit score - no less than a 650 FICO score.
